Swap name: Bike Riding Swap Round 2

- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: Yes, one has already been recruited.

- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps:
- Does not have any negative feedback:

Details of swap:
This swap is for anyone who loves bicycles and bicycle riding, (and even for people who ride vespas or motorcycles).  There is no actual swapping of bikes, instead people should swap bike-related items like helmet embellishments, bike baskets or bags, seat covers, maintenance kits, and other items related to riding.  People can also craft items using bike parts- necklaces made from gears, picture frames made from old bike tires, etc.  Also, you can craft items for your partner such as t-shirts, bags, gloves or hats which can be worn while biking or which relate to biking (i.e. "I HEART BIKES" or "I LOVE MY 21 SPEED").

Partners should agree on how much to craft to ensure equality of swapping, but in general each package should have one large item (timewise) and a mixture of medium and small items. 

Here is the gallery from the bike swap a few years back:

Here is further inspiration, as located by Mezzi!
